The month of September is Healthy Aging Month. This is a great time to be thinking about some practices and habits you can implement in your life to help your health in the long run. Here are some of our recommendations:

  • Pick up a new exercise or physical activity. Exercises like yoga and swimming are relaxing, low-impact, and fun. Plus you’ll relieve stress and release endorphins, both of which are great for your mental health.

  • Get regular checkups for your hearing and more. Wearing hearing aids, should you need them, can help reduce the risk of falls, reduce the risk of depression, ward off mental decline and conditions like dementia, and keep you socially active. Sign up for your complimentary hearing screening with Hearing Health here. Don’t forget about regular dental, physical, and eyesight checkups as well.

  • Meet more people, more often. An attributing factor to living a longer, happier life is your social life. Volunteer, join clubs, take a class on a subject you’re interested in, or take someone you already know out for lunch/dinner.

  • Be positive. This is the most important tip on this list! Always strive to think positive and take positive actions and steps in your life. In the long run, you will live happier, healthier, and longer because of it.
